2014 bonuses - some winners and likely losers

Graph And Coins

The bonus pool is likely to rise this year, but not everyone will run out winners.

Wall Street’s bonus pool may rise as much as 10% this year for asset managers while fixed-income traders could see a 15% cut, according to compensation consultant Johnson Associates.

Bloomberg New reports that incentive pay will probably rise the most in investment-banking advisory services, at private-equity firms and prime brokerages and for asset- and wealth-managers, Johnson said in a report May 12.

Financial firms are poised to increase assets under management and benefit from an uptick in mergers and acquisitions, and independents facing fewer regulations may win business from larger banks, Johnson said.

'This is really a sea change', Alan Johnson, founder and managing director of the consultant, said in a phone interview. 'It’s been coming and coming and now it’s finally apparent that the largest paychecks don’t come from Wall Street banks'.
